HTML | Location assign( ) Method

  • Last Updated : 23 Jul, 2019

The Location assign() method is used for loading a new document. It can also be used for loading a new document but the difference between these two methods is that the replace() method removes the URL of the current document from the document history and therefore it is not possible to navigate back to the original document using the “back” button.



Parameters Used:

  1. URL: It is a mandatory parameter which specifies the URL of the page to navigate to.

Below program illustrates the Location assign() Method :

Loading a new document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Location assign() Method in HTML</title>
        h1 {
            color: green;
        h2 {
            font-family: Impact;
        body {
            text-align: center;
    <h2>Location assign() Method</h2>
    <p>For loading a new document, 
      double click the "Load Document" button: </p>
    <button ondblclick="load()">Load Document</button>
        function load() {


After clicking the button

Note: Above program would not work for all links as cross framing is not allowed in many cases, try it by assigning link “”.
